1999's Always Sick, a split release by The Felicity Syndrome and The Linger Effect was meant to be the start of a series of experimental cassettes to be launched on a side label called Tape-Gun cassettes. However, the bands submitted tracks that were more great than experimental and the music was released under My Mean Magpie.
The 30-minute cassette was originally packaged in hand-made cases that were both elaborate and painstaking - with rivets, string, fabric and French paper. 13 of the limited edition were made.
After 8 long years, the album finally sees a reissue in digital form with reworked artwork and a bonus track from The Felicity Syndrome.

my name is Marzia from Turin (Italy). I liked your music Eardrum and I used it for a video to show the drawings (mine and one friend of mine) in a specific site art installation near Turin for Slow Food. You can see the video on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvh-WyRglhw
I tried to put it on www.ourmedia but I had problems for many time.....
I hope you like it :-)
